Jolt of Java - Revisited

Last month I posted the findings from a request sent to librarians asking about coffeeshops in school libraries (A Jolt of Java @ Your Library). Below is a very nice follow-up and one of several pictures included with the e-mail. Thanks, Sara!


 Hi Doug,  I am one who was searching for info last year on cafes in the IMC.  I just wanted to let you know that I followed my gut instinct on this one and am happy I did so.  Things were getting a little stagnant in the IMC and this has brought students and staff in and only been positive.  Our cappuccino/hot chocolate cafe area has been in business since school opened and things have gone very well.  (We have a very small 1970 IMC.)  Our new cafe is the one area that I never have to address behavior in.  The kids have risen to the occasion and are acting very mature and seem to love it.  This week we added checkers and chess and that too, is working well.  I am enclosing some pics-most taken when the room was empty in order for people to see how it looks.  So my word is, if anyone is so inclined to try it, they should go for it.  I am so pleased.  Thanks for listening, Sara
